"Run around and blow everyone up to win! Classic Bomberman action!"
In Normal, the game plays the usual Bomberman gameplay.
"A countdown starts if you're bombed, and once time runs out you're toast!"
In Countdown, players have a countdown timer appear above their head. If the timer reaches zero, the player that has it is eliminated until the next game. Bombing other players adds 10 seconds to the timer. Players are also able to steal or give timers to other players.
"It's a scramble for the crown! Whoever has it at the end wins."
In King, a crown is set in the middle of the stage. Players will be put in an equal length between the crown and themselves. Whoever has the crown by the end wins or earns more points. The player with the crown will be a shiny, golden color. In order to knock the crown out of the player's hands, the player with the crown must be bomb blasted; at that phase, the crown will "jump" to a random square.
"It's rainin' bombs! Dodge 'em or use shields, but you can't set bombs!"
In Air Raid, bombs are dropped from the sky landing to the ground. Fire icons will appear in the adjacent tiles, indicating the strength and reach of the bomb blast before it explodes. Shields can be used at the start, and there are no soft blocks.
